A NOVEL STRIKE. The whole of the pitmen usually employed in Washington Colliery, have struck work, and have re- fused to go into the pit until proper keps are put into the shaft, to prevent, if possible, the recurrence of an accident to the cage, such as that which happened at the pit last week, by which two men and lads were killed. The masters promise to get the keps put in as soon as possible, but the men refuse to resume work until these safeguards are completed. The men also complain that their lives are endangered by a loco- motive being allowed to run between the engine-house and- the shaft mouth, by which, if the men are being drawn to bank at the time the engine is passing, the engineman is likely to be prevented from seeing the cage arrive at the bank. The men have determined to seek legal advice to see if it is possible to get some legal compensation for the families of the men who were killed by the late accident. Two of them only were members of the Miners' Permanent Benefit Society.
